I stayed here for one night while on a cycling trip with my wife in August. Our intention was originally to cross the alps from here and end our 1000km trip in Venice, however the experience in Villach was so demotivating for us both that we decided to take the train home. The hotel itself is modern for 1970s standards. It is clean, the staff are friendly, but the room decor is so dreary, drab and dark, I couldn't really recommend this place lowly enough. Cyclists get the pleasure of putting their bikes in a small garage which remains unlocked. I looked at a couple of rooms including the inevitable one right next to the elevator, and the one overlooking the busy road. I plumped for the one right next to the elevator overlooking the interior courtyard. It was actually quite quiet, considering the location (right in the city center). The hotel has no amenities like a sauna, gym or pool which is ok for that rate.
The breakfast was very good, no plastic wrapped portions of butter, and marmelade in this hotel. Fresh rolls, excellent coffee, competent and friendly service. In fact the restaurant attached to the hotel seems to me to be one of the best places in town to eat. Be wary though that smokers are allowed to pollute the air with their selfish habit in the next room. One day later on looking around Villach I noticed there was a Holiday Inn across the river for 30EUR extra per night.. what a world of difference! Let's be fair though, this is a 100EUR/night B and B for two people, it's ok, but there are better hotels in Villach for not much more money.
